Classic Radio Crime: presenting vintage detectives for your investigation!
The Lady in a Fog is an original radio crime drama starring Robert Beatty as Detective Philip Odell.
Such was the popularity of the eponymous radio detective that the series - which ran on the BBC Light Programme between 1947 and 1961 - spawned novels and a 1951 feature film.
Among the supporting cast of this 1958 eight-part serial are Mary Wimbush, James Thomason, John Bennett, Jeffrey Segal, June Tobin, David March, Trevor Martin and members of the BBC Drama Repertory Company.

This recording, from 1958, is exquisitely done. Whoever ran this session had to have been one of the best at the time. The sheer quality of the voice capture in the studio is truly high, and the direction and pacing are excellent.
